- Continue to feed and dead-head your hanging basket and container plants - they will often keep going until the first frosts.
- Try autumn-sowing hardy annuals for bigger plants next year.
- Start to divide herbaceous perennials as the weather cools. Make sure you water in the new divisions well.
- Fill gaps in borders with autumn flowering plants such as sedum and chrysanthemum to extend the colour to the end of the season.
- Plant hyacinth and amaryllis bulbs for forcing, to ensure a crowd of colourful blooms at Christmas.
- Plant spring-flowering bulbs such as daffodils, crocus and hyacinths now.
- Plant out any biennial plants sown earlier in the year, or if you didn't have time, you can buy plants now. This includes foxgloves, wallflowers and Violas.
- September is a good time to plant new perennials as the soil is still warm but there is generally more rainfall.
- Keep deadheading annuals, perennials and roses to extend their performance.
- Prune climbing roses and rambling roses once they've finished flowering (unless they are repeat-flowering, in which case leave them).
